Robinson dominates, scores 31

Courtney Robinson’s strong scoring night helped Blue Ridge cruise past Greenville last week.

The junior, who eclipsed 1,000 career points earlier this season, dropped 31 points and brought in 17 rebounds, earning The Greer Citizen and Clock/Clock Express’ Player of the Week honors.

Let's ignore race

I wasn’t going to write about Richard Sherman.

I didn’t think he deserved all the attention he attracted after his postgame rant in the NFC Championship. In my opinion, he said what most every passionate and competitive athlete would say if you stick a microphone in their face right after a huge win.

Teammates tackle Blue Ridge senior Clay Arnold, No. 30, who hit the game-winning three to beat Eastside on Friday night. The Tigers have now won three straight.

Blue Ridge stuns Eastside

The final shot of the game was not drawn up for Blue Ridge’s Clay Arnold.

Tiger coach Ray Riley had no problem with the result, however.

Blue Ridge (4-9) stunned one of the region’s top teams, pulling out a 47-46 win over Eastside on the road as the clocked ticked down.

Rebels 'bat'tle gym issues

It has been a strange January for basketball teams at Byrnes High.

Since Jan. 7, Byrnes boys’ and girls’ basketball teams have been unable to play in the gym on campus, relocating to Byrnes Freshman Academy across the street.

Spartanburg District Five officials say bats are the problem.

Stoddard a key to success

Blue Ridge has been hot as of late, and senior Reggie Stoddard caught fire against Pickens and Eastside last week.

Stoddard scored 31 points against the Blue Flame and 19 against the Eagles in back-to-back wins, earning The Greer Citizen’s and Clock Restaurant/Clock Express’ Player of the Week award.
